Join Bryant and Tyler as they discuss the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival (LA-AFF) and the world premiere of ‘No Game No Life: Zero.’ Not only that, but Sentai Filmworks and the film festival brought us a very special presentation of the first anime film in existence. 100 years of anime, here’s to 100 years more! Below I have information on the film, ‘The Dull Sword,’ LA-AFF, Sentai Filmworks, and Hurricane Harvey relief fund. Synopsis: Six thousand years before Sora and Shiro were even a blink in the history of Disboard, war consumed the land, tearing apart the heavens, destroying stars, and even threatening to wipe out the human race. Amid the chaos and destruction, a young man named Riku leads humanity toward the tomorrow his heart believed in. One day, in the ruins of an Elf city, he meets Shuvi, a female exiled “Ex-machina” android who asks him to teach her what it means to have a human heart. (Via Sentai Filmworks) The film runs 106 minutes long and is a prequel to the 12 episode long series, No Game No Life, from 2014. This film has been long awaited and I can tell you: it is amazing. Currently, the anime series is rated an 8.43 on MyAnimeList.net and beloved by Tyler and the Shukai crew. Fans are STILL awaiting news from Madhouse to announce season 2… For the World Premiere event, we saw the ‘Dubbed’ version, which we discuss in the podcast. It was exciting because we got to meet and hear a Q&A with Scott Gibbs, Caitlynn French, ADR Director Kyle Colby Jones, and producer Sho Tanaka! Gibbs voices Riku for NGNL:Zero and Sora in the series. . French voices Shuvi for Zero and Shiro in the series. . . .
